[i]Aldrin was struck by the fineness of the regolith dust.
“Like talcum powder. That’s why I took one of the few photos on the moon of the iconic boot print.”
The dust also got to Duke. He noticed, back inside the lander, that when you rubbed it between your fingers, it felt “oily, like graphite”. He also said it smelt like gunpowder. Other walkers have said the same thing. But when transported back to Earth, it seemed to lose this smell. So does the moon smell? Well, it is possible the regolith emitted an odour on contact with the oxygen in the lander — so maybe yes, the moon smells of gunpowder.[/i]
